How does performing help students grow, achieve their goals and feel successful?
When you perform, you learn a lot about yourself and the areas you need to grow in.
If you’ve set any musical or performance goals throughout your journey, a performance is the perfect opportunity to see how far you’ve come and assess were you can grow.
When you perform, you are exercising your ability to share an expression of yourself. Performing, like giving a speech or a presentation, builds your confidence.
What’s more, the process of learning and producing a finished product or piece of music presents a template for students to carry in to other aspects of their life.
Students learn to comprehend difficult aspects of learning, and to enjoy the process of polishing a song.
